Why would they do that? Then they wouldn't get browny points from Kenne
Belle in order to keep them as an advertiser.
Some of the things in the article are cool, some of them are total b.s.
For what they put into that heap it ought to be running SOLID 12's.
Extrude Honed manifolds....its obvious that they aren't payin for this
stuff, cuz who in their rite mind would do their intakes so early in the
game, especially since its like a 600 dollar mod.
I see ablsolutly no reaon why this article cant put on parts one at a
time, and go to the track and get a time, do something else, and get more
times...Funni, I dont remember hearing any track times since part I.  Its
not like the progress is so fast they dont have time to go to he
track...they do like 2 things a write up. I wonder if one of the big
reasons progress is so small that they screw around with it and lose power
half the time and they wont say what doesn't work, jus what will improve
power when cost is not an object.

Hmmm, same reason as above I wonder?
